Dressing The Trees For Christmas

 

 

 

Dressing The Trees For Christmas

The prettiest decorations I have seen this year are birds and berries! My Christmas gift to you all is a series of images of the redwings, and other winter visitors, at RHS Wisley Garden. I’ll be posting one a day. They’ve been gathering in flocks to feast on the many fruits and berries throughout the gardens. As we all prepare to gather together ourselves, for the midwinter feast, I hope that you will all have some time to appreciate the gifts of nature. Better than any expensive games console! Although the berries are plentiful they won’t last all through the season, so I hope you will all join me in feeding our birds this winter. Nature is one particular gift that we need to invest in so that it keeps on giving for future generations.

  1. How lovely to see redwings. We have flocks of birds here at the moment, but they could be fieldfares and/or starlings, they are not still long enough for me to tell. No goldfinches yet this year either. I look forward to seeing the rest of your winter visitors. Hope you have a lovely festive season and I wish you a wonderful 2018 Sarah.

    • It’s always lovely seeing the redwings and fieldfares! They were all together on a couple of the cherry trees in the country garden at Wisley last week ๐Ÿ˜ Sounds like you need a good pair of binoculars or a spotter! We have year round starlings living in the grounds of our flats and they’re great fun to watch too. Wondering if I will get to see waxwings again in Shropshire this Christmas! That was such an amazing sight. I’ll keep watching the redwings throughout winter at Wisley. They’re beautiful birds! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas too Jude ๐Ÿ˜
